Lost in Translation

... man...they weren't speaking the english that I could understand. And some of them spoke so fast, and with such strong accents that there were many bits that I just didn't get. The worse parts was when the audience broke out in a loud guffaw, or even just a polite chuckle and we sat there wondering what the heck was funny about that? But we did get the gist of the story, you know, the big all was not lost. And we got to see a beautiful theatre ...

... there will be dancing, there will be Coca-Cola. And there will be the pig that has been slaughtered especially for this celebration, for this farewell 'despedida', this fiesta. But the consequences of the reality of this day are as yet unknown to her. She has no knowledge of how much life is about to change.

The neighbours arrive, whole families flocking together to pay their respects, to have one last glance, to be seen to be among the number that calls ...

Everything is Illuminated

A travel blog entry by laurackennedy on Jan 28, 2015

The light softens everything around me. All is bathed in its luminescence, its bright whiteness, and its glowing starkness. Yet all is not soft, all is not equal, all is not as you would have it.

It's as if I am in a dream, reality mixed with the surreal, it is so alive yet cannot be. How can this be real life, how do we exist? Yet as I open my heart the fuzziness fades, all that I see comes into focus, as if the shutter having been removed from the ...

... too bad. Just a lack of sleep was all that was the problem. I learned quite a lot about the GAA as well as Croke Park. It's funny how the GAA was formed in a billiards room. Lastly, the trip around Dublin offered some great insight. For example, I never would have suspected that some of the sculptures have bullet holes and that Hitler's half brother's son fought in the American army against the Nazis! It was a crazy, fun filled day. Hopefully tomorrow is he ...

Day 17: Barcelona to Dublin

... that ball with that spoon, I don't know how they don't belt each other, but they don't! And they hit it so long and so accurately. A hundred metres out from goal? No matter, I'll just twist and hit and it'll go through. And it always did! Worse; despite this being played in front of a full house, and beamed across the country to packed pubs, the players don't get paid. They're regarded as amateurs, and do it purely for the love of the game. It's insane! Anyway, as much as I ...
